Local Government (General Grant) (19 Dec 1962)

Mr George Pargiter: I listened with considerable interest to the Minister's exposition of the general grant position and, by and large, I agreed with what he had to say. However, I did not agree with his remarks in their entirety. For example, if one looks back over the general grant procedure and studies the matter up to the time of arriving at the relevant expenditure, one finds that there have been certain...

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill (10 Dec 1962)

Mr George Pargiter: On the subject of education, does the balance of advantage in the outer London area cover the whole range of services, including further education?

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill (10 Dec 1962)

Mr George Pargiter: Why, having regard to this brand-new structure, should we retain aldermen?

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill (10 Dec 1962)

Mr George Pargiter: What I meant was that, having regard to the much wider area which each council will have to cover, would it not be wiser to have a larger number of elected representatives rather than a number of unelected representatives?

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill (10 Dec 1962)

Mr George Pargiter: Mr. Pargiter rose—

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill (10 Dec 1962)

Mr George Pargiter: Is the right hon. Lady aware that we all meet these sort of complaints, that people cannot get past the clerks in, say, the housing officer's department of a local authority? Many people who are frustrated are properly the responsibility of local authorities, not the London County Council.

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill (10 Dec 1962)

Mr George Pargiter: Having had some long experience of county council and non-county borough government, I shall not be accused, I hope, of having too much hindsight and too little foresight in my criticisms of the Bill in its present form. We are all, I believe, concerned for genuine, good local government, and I think that goes for both sides of the House. I do not believe that we object to modifications which...

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill (10 Dec 1962)

Mr George Pargiter: I am glad to have that confirmed by the right hon. Gentleman, because in his speech the emphasis seemed to be rather the other way. Reference has been made to the present proliferation of local authorities in the Greater London area and the necessity to tidy them up. But from what I gather, in Middlesex we look like getting rid of a proliferation of local authorities only to have instead a...

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill (10 Dec 1962)

Mr George Pargiter: I hope that the Minister will also have something to say about technical education in Middlesex, where there is equally a problem. I have referred largely to the technical colleges. As for residential special schools, there is only one in the county of Middlesex, and the county administers 10 outside Middlesex. What is to happen to those? Who will have them? We shall certainly require an...

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill (10 Dec 1962)

Mr George Pargiter: Is it not a fact that the Hendon Council no longer accepts any new applicants to its list?

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill (10 Dec 1962)

Mr George Pargiter: What about the others?

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill (10 Dec 1962)

Mr George Pargiter: Are we to take it from this that the principles of water conservation as they apply to an area such as the London basin, which ought to be treated as a whole for water conservation purposes, will have no effect at all because private interests will become involved?

Orders of the Day — Air Corporations Bill ( 6 Nov 1962)

Mr George Pargiter: Will the flight hon. Gentleman say whether in this inquiry the person concerned will also be free to comment upon aspects of policy which may have led to losses, policies which may have been determined outside B.O.A.C. itself?

Orders of the Day — Air Corporations Bill ( 6 Nov 1962)

Mr George Pargiter: My question was whether the gentleman investigating the accounts of B.O.A.C. would be free to comment on all aspects of policy, some of which might not have been under the immediate control of B.O.A.C. management.

Orders of the Day — Homeless Families, London (30 Jul 1962)

Mr George Pargiter: The position has, of course, altered with regard to compulsory purchase. Whereas at one time the L.C.C. was able to purchase a house at what was considered a fair price, compulsory purchase now means that the full market price must be paid. Thus, even if it buys by compulsory purchase, it is liable to be no better off.

Orders of the Day — Homeless Families, London (30 Jul 1962)

Mr George Pargiter: The tendency tonight is to think largely in terms of the County of London whereas this problem of the homeless family goes far beyond its boundaries. I have been interested to hear the academic approach of Members opposite. It is an approach we often hear from them towards these human problems. They talk of such things as housing associations, but that is not much good to a homeless family,...

Orders of the Day — Homeless Families, London (30 Jul 1962)

Mr George Pargiter: I thought that the hon. Gentleman was extolling the idea that where necessary local authorities should come to the rescue of private developers, by compulsory purchase if necessary. That is what the hon. Gentleman said, but I accept that he did not mean that, and perhaps he will come across to the ideas that I have propounded. In connection with the problem of homeless families in the...

Orders of the Day — Homeless Families, London (30 Jul 1962)

Mr George Pargiter: The Minister admits it. What are the Government going to do about it? They have some responsibility to see that the laws they make are obeyed, even by local authorities. If local authorities defaulted on the question of their loan charges the Government would step in vary quickly. Why not step in now to do something about overcrowding? In my constituency this is aggravated by the fact there...

Orders of the Day — Homeless Families, London (30 Jul 1962)

Mr George Pargiter: I am not sure that I understood the question entirely. Exploitation is an aspect of the problem, but exploitation is a general question. We have exploitation by the big property-owning landlords—an example which is followed by people lower down the scale. I am not saying that exploitation does not take place. We have been talking about the problem of absence of control over furnished or...

Dissolution of Parliament (26 Jul 1962)

Mr George Pargiter: There seems to be a conspiracy on the other side of the House to turn this debate into a sort of super-economic debate, not to go too much into what may have happened in the past, which is the reason for the Motion which we have submitted, but rather to raise the tone and get a nice, calm sort of atmosphere far away from the facts of life. It is just as well Chat we should come back to the...
